Summer is on our doorstep in this part of the woods and I’ve been craving something inspired by the promise of warmer weather. This uber gourmet pizza promises to deliver that summer feeling with all of the fresh, seasonal ingredients as a topping.
I think the flavours of creme fraiche, smoked salmon and mint all mixed up gives this pizza some extra pizazza, and if you are consuming the odd glass of wine on your eating plan then I highly recommend enjoying this with a nice glass of crisp sauvignon blanc….
These little gems are what keep me going through the winter months. I usually make 3 or 4 on a Sunday evening and keep them in the fridge for midweek breakfasts on the run. They were actually one of the first things I made when I decided to go low-carb and they really are a staple in our house. They are also very versatile as you can round up a bunch of fillings from the fridge and make a different muffin flavour for each one. I find they also work particularly well for kids and if you have the time they enjoy joining in to make them.
If there is one dish that I always look forward to eating in winter its oxtail stew. This dish was traditionally reserved for winter months growing up in our home because of its high fat content, but as it turns out if you are eating low carbohydrate high fat diet, and looking for fats to fill up on, this is a wonderful recipe to enjoy (I’ve been waiting my whole life for someone to tell me to dig in and enjoy a good helping of fat with my meals!).
